Deborah Penchoff, the associate director of the UT Innovative Computing Laboratory and a research assistant professor in the Department of Nuclear Engineering, has been profiled on the blog of The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC).
Penchoff served as Plenary Productions Chair for this year’s conference, SC23, which took place earlier this month in Denver, Colorado. The record-setting event welcomed more than 14,000 attendees and marked the 35th year of the conference.
In honor of this milestone, SC23 introduced an “I Am HPC” blog campaign to highlight the diverse members of the high-performance computing industry and the profound social impact the field—and its people—can have. Penchoff’s profile, a part of this series, surveys her professional background and commitment to inclusivity.
“Moving forward, I would like for scientists to be part of a larger team with less defined boundaries to create an environment in which everyone can feel that they belong,” she said.
